BMW M’s top model – the M4 GTS – makes an appearance at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. The street-legal racing car M4 GTS will go on sale in the U.S. in April and the limited run is already rumored to be allocated to customers.

The BMW M4 GTS makes use of the multi-award-winning M TwinPower Turbo engine with 493 hp, a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 seconds, water-injection and manually adjustable shocks – the M4 GTS is ready to munch almost anything that comes to the track.

This Special Edition M4 GTS recorded a lap time of 7 minutes 28 seconds around the legendary Nürburgring-Nordschleife, the world’s most challenging race circuit.

BMW will only be developing 700 units of the M4 GTS, with only 300 making it to the North American market. Those are very low figures, even lower than the those of the Porsche 911 GT3. When something is rare, it becomes more valuable, obviously. The BMW M4 GTS will be very rare.
